Baltimore Ravens news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 29 Jul 2016 06:40:27 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Smith still holds clout in fantasy, but at 37, it's hard to envision a return to anything more than desperation WR3 or a high-end WR4. Perriman has the talent worth rolling the dice on as a WR5.

Fantasy Tip: Dixon is the only one of the trio that probably has a spot on the roster. T-Rich and Taliaferro are competing with others for the final running back spot. Neither is worth much fantasy consideration yet with so much depth and uncertainty on the roster. Dixon is in the RB5 mix.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace has a sizeable opportunity with the Ravens, who could lean heavily on him in the slot. He turns 30 in a couple of days, and this could be his last chance. He's in the WR5 flyer mix in fantasy.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what Wallace's ailment is, but he did fail a conditioning test recently. His status will need to be monitored throughout training camp, but Wallace shouldn't be drafted as more than a WR5 in standard formats in a deep Baltimore wide receiver corps.

Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) is considered day-to-day because of his medial collateral ligament sprain. Head coach John Harbaugh said Dixon could return to practice as early as Friday, July 29.
Fantasy Tip: The Ravens probably will give Dixon a few days off, but it appears he likely will be back on the field at some point next week. He will be fighting for the No. 3 running back job during training camp and could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) said he felt comfortable during practice Thursday, July 28, but wishes he was able to complete more passes. He did not try to run during practice but did move around the pocket. It is not known if he will receive any playing time in the first preseason game or if the team will hold him out until the third preseason game.
Fantasy Tip: Flacco probably will not play much in the preseason but will be ready for the start of the regular season. He will have solid tight ends to work with in 2016 but the wide receiver corps has been struggling with injuries. Flacco should be a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Taliaferro is still dealing with the foot injury he suffered last season, so he will have to wait to practice. He is expected to compete for one of the final running back spots on the roster and probably will not receive enough touches to have a fantasy impact in 2016 if he makes the team.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 medial collateral ligament sprain, according to a source. The injury is considered minor, but the team likely will proceed with caution.
Fantasy Tip: Dixon probably will miss some time because of the injury but should be ready for the start of the regular season. He likely will be the No. 3 running back on the depth chart this season and could be a late-round option in fantasy leagues because he could see more playing time as the season goes on.

Fantasy Tip: Specifics aren't known, but Dixon is expected to be the third running back on the squad. He's in the RB5 mix in fantasy if the ailment isn't too severe, but he doesn't have a lot of upside for playing time early on.

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett expects to hang onto the starting job and do the bulk of the work at the running back position ahead of RBs Javorius Allen, Kenneth Dixon, Lorenzo Taliaferro and Terrance West. The team also has RB Trent Richardson (knee) competing for a roster spot. While Forsett might be optimistic, he is 31 and the team is leaning toward reducing his carries.
Fantasy Tip: The Ravens are very deep at the running back position, but Forsett plans on being the bell cow and it's hard to bet against him. However, it is a good idea to nab Buck Allen as a handcuff just to be on the safe side.

Free-agent OT Jake Long (Falcons) is scheduled to meet with Dr. James Andrews to have his surgically repaired knee examined before the Baltimore Ravens finalized a deal with him. Long suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in 2013 and 2014.
